Why tourism & peace? It has been claimed by organisations such as UNESCO, that tourism promotes peace, on the grounds that it fosters intercultural understanding. This book, however, places the spotlight on one inevitable irritant: the conflicts. Supporters of tourism for peace may suggest a holiday away from conflicts, while missing the fact that tourism depends on differences - the source of conflict. Ignoring conflict, however, is not the privilege of tourism's counterpart: the protagonist in any peace work and research is conflict. Therefore, this book explores conflict as viewed by modern peace research - the personal and non-violent transformation of conflict - aiming at a new framework for the discussion of tourism & peace, based on conflict. With conflict linked to the tourist, related concepts emerging are emotional literacy, personal development, the meaning of conflict and peace, and peace education. It is expected that the book would be of interest to the fields of tourism, peace, conflict, and psychology. Also, the constructive use of conflict explored here, might be of interest to anyone alarmed by the increase of violence.
